Allardyce cool on Obafemi Martins link

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has scotched rumours that he is planning a loan move for Seattle Sounders striker Obafemi Martins.

Obafemi Martins has previously played in the Premier League with Newcastle and Birmingham City.

• Thorne: Allardyce debate continues

Martins, 29, played under Allardyce at Newcastle and although he was usually a substitute under ‘Big Sam’, reports have suggested that a return to the Premier League could be on the cards.

The Hammers have struggled in front of goal this season, with first-choice striker Andy Carroll yet to play because of injury, with Martins demonstrating he has not lost his scoring touch by netting seven goals in 14 games in his debut MLS campaign for the Sounders.

The former Wolfsburg frontman is available on loan during the MLS off-season, but Allardyce insists talk of a reunion with Martins is news to him.

"I haven't heard anything about Oba,” Allardyce said. “He's playing in America at the moment. Everyone knows if we're in the market for a player, we'll be linked with everybody. We'll deal with that -- speculation is speculation."
